3-4-1-2 with the Ox dropped: Arsenal predicted line-up vs Stoke City

The Gunners are preparing for their second fixture of the new Premier League season which happens to be a tricky trip to Stoke City this weekend.

Arsene Wenger’s men started the campaign by securing maximum points in the clash with Leicester City last Friday.

The Arsenal manager will hope his team continues what is a six-game winning run, going all the way back to the final matches of last season.

With Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain failing to produce a solid performance last week, it might be time to hand the left wing-back role to Sead Kolasinac while Nacho Monreal occupies a more suitable position on the left side of the back three.

Rob Holding was not at his best against Leicester either but the return of Per Mertsacker should take care of matters before Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi are back.
